Abiding > Striving - Part 3
Finally, we focus our attention on the results. That’s really the point of all this anyway. It is why we strive. It is also what makes abiding so much greater!
2 Peter 1:8 - 11 outlines positive and negative results. If we abide, we can be assured of positive results. If we do not abide, then we can be assured of negative results. Sure, that is a big "if", but it is not meant to cast doubt upon our salvation. Rather, it is a statement of fact that focuses our attention on the results of abiding in Christ.
